We just have to follow the money to see who benefits financially with the expansion of America’s defense budget. Defense companies will continue to reap the financial benefits of wars and an expanded defense budget. Investment banks will benefit from the financing of defense companies.
With a current budget of $600 Billion, tell me again how America can’t afford Free Community College for all Americans at a cost of $1.6 Billion (0.27% of the current defense budget)?
America needs to get its priorities straight, or maybe it’s already showing us what is its priorities.
